How Much Watching Time Do You Have This Weekend?

No matter how much free time you have this weekend, we have TV recommendations for you. Come back every Friday for new suggestions on what to watch.

This Weekend I Have … 25 Minutes and a Curious Kid

When to watch: Now, on Netflix.

Think “Radiolab” meets “Mythbusters” for young viewers. “Brainchild” is an earnest science series hosted by Sahana Srinivasan that unpacks big topics like germs and the ocean with a fun and simple style that is still informative for adults. The show is geared toward tweens, but it also has plenty of appeal for younger viewers; if you’re watching with little kids, skip the first episode, which is about social media, and move on to the juicer ones about dreams or space.

… a Few Hours, and I Was Busy This Spring

‘Killing Eve’
When to watch: Starting Saturday, on Hulu.

Everyone’s favorite fashionable assassin show from earlier this year is finally streaming. Sandra Oh crushes it in this cat-and-mouse drama as Eve Polastri, an MI5 officer tracking a young female killer-for-hire across Europe. Even though the show is quite violent and deals with, you know, a lot of murders, it isn’t bleak or depressing or even particularly sad. It’s fun and sometimes funny, with characters who have a genuine sense of humor. If you want something smart and serious but not miserable, watch this.

… 10 Hours, and I Remember High School

‘America to Me’
When to watch: Now, on Starz.

This 10-part documentary about a high school just outside Chicago is riveting and poignant and frustrating and intimate. It follows a handful of students and teachers, including the superstar English teacher Jess Stovall, who are trying to address the systemic racism at their ostensibly integrated, progressive school — where even acknowledging race can be a touchy subject for some white people. I watched all 10 episodes in a row and would have watched 20 more. (Starz offers a free one-week trial, also available with its Amazon Prime Video channel.)
